What's the one song you'd play live with the original band given the chance?

well, if I'd said "phwoarr nice ti..." I could understand the fuss and as the father of two stunningly pretty little girls, agree, but I didn't. 

if you type @ and wait a moment you get a list of users to suit and you can drill down. Make sure you click on their avatar and the link goes orange. They then get a nudge to look.

Bit like facebook

Tried that and it does look as tho its doing something but waited a full 2mins and still nothing appeared so just gonna give that a miss. 

Cheers

Dave

steady on there, you'll get the same treatment from the misogyny police that I did for suggesting that one of @wateroftyne 's fellow performers was cute o.O

Not from me, I hasten to add! :-D

 asking myself what would be the song I'd most like to play live with the original band/original member(s) in a decent venue in front of a decent crowd. I'm gonna have a think about it, in the meantime, any takers?

Sure. Space Is The Place, with pretty much any incarnation of Sun Ra's band.

Sledgehammer with Peter Gabriel was my first thought. I'm such a weird not-quite-20 year old 😅

Either that or Mr Blue Sky with all of ELO. That would be pretty special as a Bluenose.

Also the live version of Orgone Accumulator from Hawkwind's Space Ritual

I reckon Down Though the Night on Space Ritual is the best example of Lemmy's bass playing, so much drive, energy and melody.

Good thread ☺

Right now, my choices would be either;

'Moonage Daydream' with Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars,

or

'Under My Skin' with Frank Sinatra and The Woody Herman Band (circa 1974)

or

'The Light Pours Out of Me' with Magazine

Ask me tomorrow though, and there'd be three completely different choices. 😁

I love Lem’s playing in Hawkwind; I learnt to play by playing along to Space Ritual.

As good  a start as anything you'd find anywhere, I reckon.

Well it seemed to work for me! I suppose the bass I’d mainly heard growing up was a mixture of walking jazz & Macca (we were a “jazz only” household until I was about 10, but I used to stay at my aunt’s a lot and my older cousins - in their teens - were into the Beatles). In a weird sort of way, to me at least, Lem combined something of the movement & melody of both whilst turning it all up to 11. 

Anyway, apologies, back to the thread! BTW, the first album I ever bought was ABBA’s Greatest Hits. I really do love them you know. I’ve even got a signed picture of Benny!
